Unmagical Realism | Commonweal Magazine

I reviewed a new anthology of Gabriel García Márquez’s nonfiction for Commonweal:

His role as a publisher and editor was so important to him that, as he famously said, “I do not want to be remembered for One Hundred Years of Solitude, nor for the Nobel Prize, but for the newspapers.” Perhaps fortunately for García Márquez, the unflattering portrait painted by the literary commentary included in the anthology will make readers want to stick to his great novel.
